Winter 13/14 saw a new lift in Chantemerle - it replaces the old cablecar and is a gondola with cabins for 8 people. It will be much faster than the previous cable car iwith a lift of 2500 per hour (the cable car could only manage 800!) Stay at either the Grand Hotel or the Hameau de Rocher Blanc apartments both close to the new lift.

Serre Chevalier is located in the Southern French Alps and is a jewel of a ski area. Appreciated by many including the Editors of Where to Ski & Snowboard (who rate Serre Chevalier as one of their favourite places), the skiing in Serre Chevalier is a delight, a challenge and a pleasure.

With the increasing popularity of Serre Chevalier as a ski area and the new routes in to Turin and Grenoble from last winter, there are further additions to our Winter 13/14 options in the ski resort of Serre Chevalier.
